He was captured on Bataan and was briefly held in a POW camp at Tarlac before being transported to Taiwan in late 1942. He was held in Taiwan until early 1945 and when then transported to Camp Hoten and Mukden Manchuria where he stayed until he was liberated in August 1945.
For his service in WWII on Bataan he was awarded the Legion of Merit.
This grouping is so unusual because he seemed to save EVERYTHING he had when he was liberated including his toothbrush.
He also served as the Camp Adjutant in both Taiwan and at Hoten and he saved a number of documents related to each camp.
I will let the photos tell his story.
